The smash hit RTE production earned 8 nominations for its 4th season, including Best Actor (TV) for last year’s winner Tom Vaughan-Lawlor and Best Actress for reigning champ Charlie Murphy.

Love/Hate newcomer Mary Murray – who plays brothel madame Janet – is also nominated for Best TV Actress, while Peter Coonan competes with Allen Leecg, Liam Cunningham and Aidan Gillen for Best Supporting Actor.

The gangland drama is followed closely by RTE and BBC co-production The Fall, which has 6 nominations: Soon-to-be 50 Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan is recognised for his role in the Best TV Actor category.

Chris O’Dowd and Nick Vincent Murphy’s Moone Boy secures 5 nominations, including Best Actor for O’Dowd and Best TV Series (Entertainment). Irish Pictoral Weekly, The Late Late Show and Mrs Brown’s Boys are also nominated in the category.

Love/Hate will go head to head with The Fall, Game of Thrones, Vikings and Quirke for Best TV Series (Drama).

John Michael McDonagh’s Calvary leads the film nominees, picking up 6 nominations, including a Best Actor nod for Brendan Gleeson. He’ll go head to head with son Domhnall, who is also nominated in the category for his role in About Time.

Irish comedy The Stag also picked up 6 nominations – including a Best Supporting Actress nod for Amy Huberman. Saoirse Ronan is in the running for Best Actress, while Colin Farrell and Michael Fassbender both get nods for supporting roles.

Calvary and The Stag are both nominated for Best Irish Film, alongside Run & Jump, The Sea, and Neil Jordan’s Byzantium.
